THOMAS â€” Hard to believe but the Snake River volleyball squad dropped a game on Thursday evening. Of course, that hiccup was offset by their normal dominating selves in the other three games in which they won as they emerged victorious with a 25-16, 25-19, 17-25, 25-12 non-conference win over South Fremont.
"It's homecoming week and we just weren't as focused as we normally are," Snake River head coach Shelli VanOrden said.
